Wilco’s Glen Kotche Arranges Song for Eighth Blackbird & Mario Batali!

On 2009’s all-star charity record ‘7 Worlds Collide,’ Johnny Marr and Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien teamed up with Neil and Liam Finn to write the song ‘Learn to Crawl,’ which also featured Lisa Germano and three members of Wilco. Now Wilco drummer Glen Kotche has reworked ‘Learn to Crawl’ for the Chicago chamber music sextet Eighth Blackbird, who will perform the piece with none other than New York City chef and TV star Mario Batali.

“I’ve written for Eighth Blackbird in the past, and we’ve done some shows together,” Kotche tells Spinner. “They are having their annual fundraiser, and Mario Batali’s going to cook for it. So I’m arranging this piece for them, and because Mario plays a little guitar, he’s also going to sit in.” Full Story at Spinner
